What is cosmetic surgery?
Cosmetic surgery or cosmetic dentistry are often used interchangeably, although most cosmetic dentistry services do not entail surgery. Cosmetic services may include procedures that add or remove materials from your teeth to improve the way they look.
Some of the most common cosmetic enhancements include:
- Bonding – Bonding can be used when there is a cosmetic flaw such as a chip or gap. The bonding material will fill in the area.
- Veneers –Veneers are porcelain shells that are bonded directly to teeth to alter the color, shape, or size of the teeth.
- Straightening –Both Six Month Smiles and Invisalign can align the teeth for a straighter smile.
- Gum contouring –This procedure can reshape the gum tissue to make your teeth appear more symmetrical.
- Teeth Whitening – This service removes permanent staining and bleaches the teeth to a whiter shade.
How to choose an experienced dentist for cosmetic work
Cosmetic dentistry is not a specialty, and instead just refers to a category of services. Here are some questions you should ask prior to receiving care:
- Will you be removing or adding any material to my teeth?
- Do you have before and after pictures of patients you worked on?
- What care is required after my procedures?
- How many visits will be required?
- Do you have patient references?
